Bad places

Not ordinarily a cryer, as I’ve said, but the tears are flowing this morning. I’ve had to come face to face with the horrors my daughter might have experienced. Really, there is not much chance of that not having happened, whatever the resolution. How could this be????? She was my child, and I loved her and protected her. I held her in my arms, and when she was a baby I never let her cry herself to sleep, because I never wanted her to feel sorrow or pain or need and not have someone to comfort her. I never wanted her to need me in her heart, and not be able to find me. How could someone take her from me? How could someone hurt such a beautiful little soul?

Oh Lord, please.

  4. Matthew 21:14-2214) And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple, and he healed them. 15) But when the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying out in the temple, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” they were indignant; 16) and they said to him, “Do you hear what these are saying?” And Jesus said to them, “Yes; have you never read, `Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast brought perfect praise'?” 17) And leaving them, he went out of the city to Bethany and lodged there. 18) In the morning, as he was returning to the city, he was hungry. 19) And seeing a fig tree by the wayside he went to it, and found nothing on it but leaves only. And he said to it, “May no fruit ever come from you again!” And the fig tree withered at once. 20) When the disciples saw it they marveled, saying, “How did the fig tree wither at once?” 21) And Jesus answered them, “Truly, I say to you, if you have faith and never doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, `Be taken up and cast into the sea,' it will be done. 22) And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.”

  7. What has happened to you is my biggest fear for my own children. I thank you for your safety tips for children because I am constantly trying to inform my children. I will tell my kids today about not retrieving items if it has been moved. Especially by a car. God bless you and I will put you and your daughter in my prayers.


  8. I saw you speak to the San Mateo Mother's Club. I also vividly remember hearing about Michaela's kidnapping. It breaks my heart every time I hear your story. You have amazing strength and are a terrific speaker. Thank you for sharing your powerful thoughts and ideas of how to teach your children to be safe. Your book is wonderful, too. At the same time, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
